Abundant, delightful, enchanting, stunning and delicious are just a few of many words I could use to describe Casa Ombuto. Our week in September 2013 was not only the highlight of our 8 week world adventure; it’s a top 5 highlight of my life so far. From the moment I first stumbled upon Casa Ombuto on the web, I had...

Our Tuscookany Cooking Vacation at Casa Ombuto from Sep. 28-Oct. 5, 2013 exceeded our expectations. The facilities are comfortable and charming. Chef Laura Giusti and the entire staff did wonders to facilitate the lessons and always had a smile. We loved preparing and eating so many delicious meals accompanied by an array of lovely wines.

There is a reason that every review so far is "excellent"! There can't be a place in Tuscany that can match Casa Ombuto. It is such a beautiful destination to visit with amazing places to see just a short ride away. If that is all we did, I'd still give it 5 stars. Add in that we spent the week... More

One of the best weeks I have ever spent. The staff was amazing - there was not one need that was not met. Our Chef, Laura, is the best....she made our week so special. Shanya, the hostess, could not have been more accommodating. Marta, Monica, Donatella and Livia made it easy for us to cook and enjoy ourselves. And a... More

This is the kind of experience that you see in movies where a group of strangers meets, spends a week together and goes on to have lifelong friendships. At the end of the week, everyone was sad to leave, and it was especially heartbreaking to leave our chef, Laura Giusti. The cooking classes are wonderful, but it's the overall experience... More
